Topic: roof leakage during heavy rains in bangalore

Dear Sir,

We have a room constructed on III Floor - above this we positioned 3 water storage tanks- water seepage was there during heavy rains.The platform above roof to support water tanks was removed and re laid once again.But  on recent rains we have seen again  water seepage below the paltform at corner.
How to prevent the water seepage ? Is the  water seeping thro cracks developed there ? It is observed that during continuos rains only water seepage is there.
Any  solution to solve this problem ?

Thanks

Dear Manjuks
         From your question it is observed that leakage is during continuous rain.  I am in view that there is slope problem. The water stand on the area due to not having proper slope and take time in clearing the water from roof either due to having not proper slope or not having proper diameter of  rain water pipe which take time to clear the rain water.
 There is possibility of having crack on the joint of platform of water storage with roof, which should be checked and repaired.
You should take help of any good  engineer or mason who will give solution after site visit.

Can you show photos of  roof top. where tanks are placed.
I think your roof has got settled because of heavy load of tanks. you can solve it by making new base for tanks. make it 2 feet above the roof.
share some pictures so that I can better solution.
